19th Century Nobility Portraits on Display in Sighnaghi
Eastern Georgia s picturesque town of Sighnaghi is set to host an exhibition of 19th century portraits of the country s noble families, showcasing their legacy and artistic trends of the era. Hosted by the Georgian National Museum at the network s Sighnaghi Museum venue, the show will be centered around over 40 paintings of historical figures of the royal court and nobility, including King Erekle II, Queen Darejan and Tekla Batonishvili, which will form the central point of the exhibits. Organizers revealed some of the exhibits would be displayed publicly for the first time, a part of them following conservation and restoration work carried out by experts. At its emergence, portrait art for royal court personalities in Georgia had commonalities with the European genre of the same type. However, they also feature the distinct manner of their painters and influences generated by Georgia s ties with Imperial Russia and the Western world. This later evolved into a style referred to as the =Tiflis Portrait School,= titled after the old name for the capital city. In works created under this School, smaller-size portraits featured feudal era nobility and the new bourgeoisie, with the style of works persisting until the 1860s and 1870s. Beside the paintings, the exhibition, to last until September 21, it will also include works in sculpture and miniature genres.

Gov t Finances Anaklia Echo Waves Instead of GEM Fest
This summer the government will allocate funds for Anaklia Echo Waves Festival instead of the Georgian Electronic Music Festival (GEM Fest). The Anaklia Echo Waves Festival will be funded within the Check in Georgia Project and will get 4,160,000 GEL from the state budget. According to the governmental order, the festival Anaklia Echo Waves is to be a very important tourist-cultural event. The festival will be held in Anaklia on August 23-26, 2018. The total cost of the project is 6 million GEL. The remaining 2 million GEL will be provided by the festival organizers. According to the National Tourism Administration, among the festival participant artists will be: Solomun Juan Atkins Dzijan Emin GPO Francesco Tristano Guti live The National Tourism Administration states that negotiations are ongoing with world-renowned live performers and DJs who will make the festival more solid and attractive. In addition to music, the festival includes sports and recreational activities, various artistic and cultural events, and social and educational projects. The festival will be held under the umbrella of EXIT one of the best and most popular festivals in Europe. EXIT has been held in Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Romania and Bosnia since 2000. As for the GEM Fest, the month-long electronic music festival was held for the third time in Georgia from July 14 to August 14 in Georgia s Black Sea town of Anaklia in 2017. Despite the large number of world-famous artists and DJs, this year the festival experienced numerous problems, including the death of a 22-year old girl and poisoning of more than 20 others, allegedly due to psychoactive drug -Bio- or Gamma-Hydroxybutyrate (GHB), which has been seen increasingly throughout Georgia of late. Another problem alleged financial violations during the festival, for which the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia launched an investigation in August. Due to these financial issues, around 300 employees of the festival complained they had not received their salaries. Giorgi Sigua, the founder and the organizer of GEM Fest, denied the allegations of embezzlement. He said he intends to hold the GEM festival in Anaklia, using his own funds, on August 9-12.

Сергей: They were in Georgia from November 13 to 21. We drove from west to east. An excellent trip! Excellent wine, now know what to buy, thanks to Goce. Excellent dances and great songs. I bought a CD of Georgian songs, amazing. Thank you Goche for an unforgettable trip. Good luck to you, friends! I want to draw the attention of Russian tourists such a quality of wine and at this price it is only in Georgia.

Михаил: Gocha, we are grateful for the excellent evening and for everything that we saw and learned on this journey thanks to you! THANKS from Mikhail, Lyuba, Natasha and Sergey! This toast is for you!

Олеся: To go on a tour of Georgia with the My Sweet Georgia team is the same as staying with good close friends. Warm, sympathetic, willing to show all the beauty and characteristics of their beloved country. We were told the most interesting facts and stories, deliciously fed with national dishes and cared for our comfort in every possible way. For days we stayed in an atmosphere of sincere friendliness, fun and Georgian hospitality. And even long journeys passed unnoticed - a comfortable bus with treats from the guide and the driver, songs, dances, films, funny stories and incredible beauty scenery outside the window brightened up the time on the road. From the tour, I returned already another ... Part of the Georgian soul and identity will forever remain in my heart, as well as friends, whom I acquired during the trip. With joy I will come back to you again and again, which I recommend to everyone!

Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Шкмерули, или курица в молочно-чесночном соусе

Эта курочка родом из Рачи. Рача (по-грузински это слова звучит немного иначе, но в русском языке нет согласных, которые бы точно могли передать некоторые грузинские звуки) - это тоже западный и тоже историко-этнографический район Грузии. Рача высокогорный регион, природа там красоты неописуемой, люди очень спокойные, даже медлительные и задумчивые, поэтому про рачинцев рассказывают смешные истории, где они понимают происходящее спустя долгое время, иногда даже годы. Это, конечно, шутка, но не без основания. Думаю, многие из вас хоть раз, да слышали слово "Хванчкара", это фантастическое вино тоже родом из Рачи, виноград, из которого оно получается растет в одном-единственном селе - Хванчкара, на высоте 560 метров над уровнем моря. Еще в Грузии славится рачинская ветчина, выделанная особым способом и лобио. Так вкусно, как готовят лобио в Раче, не готовят больше нигде! И конечно, лобиани - хлеб с фасолью, популярный по всей стране не меньше, чем хачапури. А теперь о сегодняшней курочке. Факт очень необычный, но факт. Крестьянское блюдо имеет точное место происхождения и даже известна фамилия человека, впервые приготовившего его. Шкмерули происходит от названия рачинского села Шкмери, расположенного на высоте 1720 м. над уровнем моря, там легко можно достать облака рукой, а приготовил его некий Гловели, но это как раз очень просто, почти все, кто там живет, носят эту фамилию. Говорят (за достоверность не ручаюсь), что блюдо это стало результатом крестьянской бережливости. Как-то у этого самого крестьянина возникла, скажем так, проблема с забитой птицей. Жалко было отдавать собакам целую курицу, вот и решил он попробовать ее спасти, а использовал то, что было под рукой. Зато теперь это очень популярное и очень вкусное блюдо! И еще одно отступление, но по теме. Для приготовления шкмерули используется традиционная в Западной Грузии глиняная сковорода - кеци, которая раскаляется на углях и долго и хорошо держит тепло. Я понимаю, что вы эту сковороду не то что иметь не можете, но и слышите о ней, возможно, впервые, я использовала ее для поддержания аутентичности, но как спокойно обойтись без нее, станет ясно из рецепта Курицу солим, обмазываем растительным маслом и жарим, можно в духовке, можно на плите, как вам удобно и привычно Пока жарится курица, почистим и раздавим (или растолчем в ступке) чеснок и отмерим молоко и воду Готовую курицу разделаем, жир, образовавшийся при жарке, сольем в пиалу Укладываем кусочки курицы в сковороду с высокими бортами или в кастрюлю с низкими, а лучше в красивую керамическую форму, которую можно ставить на огонь И готовим соус. Соединяем воду и молоко, доводим до кипения, чуть-чуть солим, не слишком, курица ведь соленая, вливаем в него немного жира, оставшегося от жарения, кладем чеснок, перемешиваем и выключаем Горячим соусом заливаем курицу. Поскольку кеци, на котором лежит курица должно быть горячим и соус тоже только с огня, в оригинале блюдо готово, но за неимением данного приспособления, мы поступим очень просто - поставим сковороду с курицей и соусом на низкий огонь на 1-2 минуты. Подают это блюдо горячим, так чтобы соус пускал пузырики, но если после обеда что-то останется, поставив это что-то в холодильник, на следующий день вы найдете курицу в желированном соусе, и это будет тоже очень вкусно!
Печеная айва с орехами

Печеная айва с орехами

Айва — прекрасный и очень почитаемый в Грузии фрукт. По этому рецепту ее запекали в семье нашего друга Димы Антадзе. 1. Моем айву в холодной воде, аккуратно срезаем верхушки и осторожно, чтобы не повредить оболочку, вынимаем ножом сердцевину вместе с косточками. 2. Орехи два раза проворачиваем через мясорубку и разводим молоком до консистенции сметаны. Добавляем горсть изюма. 3. Фаршируем айву ореховой массой и накрываем срезанными верхушками. 4. Укладываем айву одним слоем в кастрюлю и заливаем водой до уровня среза. Тушим на медленном огне минут сорок — час, пока айва не станет мягкой. Готовую айву выкладываем на блюдо. 5. Воду, в которой тушилась айва, смешиваем с оставшейся ореховой начинкой, добавляем кусок сливочного масла и поливаем фрукты получившимся теплым соусом. Это очень простой и очень вкусный десерт. А еще в Грузии айву часто добавляют в мясные блюда — в баранину или свинину: она дает совершенно особенный вкус. источник: eda.ru
